Five hundred thousand of foreigners lost the right of entry to Russia

Half a million of foreign citizens are denied the right to enter Russia for a period from three to ten years, – reports the agency “Interfax”. The ban is associated with their violations of the law, – informs the press secretary of the FMS of Russia Zalina Kornilova.

Thereby the entry was denied to citizens who have exceeded the duration of stay in the country, committed repeated offenses, violated immigration laws or used fake immigration cards.

The spokesman also told about thirty-four specially created centers for the detention of citizens and stateless persons subject to expulsion, readmission or deportation. These centers are run fully by FMS.

“There are standards of management in those centers, for example: not less than 6 square meters per person, separation of men and women (except relatives), three hot meals in designated areas, ensuring of personal hygiene, health provision, individual bed with bed linen changed at least once a week, if necessary the services of interpreter are provided,” – quote the media the words of Zalina Kornilova.

These and other measures have been taken after the collision of foreign citizens with the police on Matveyevskiy market and the market in Biryulyovo.
